The Busan Transportation Corporation said that it plans to expand the ‘Pink Light’ service to give priority seats for pregnant women on all subway lines in Busan on top of line No.1 and 3.
The new implementation will begin starting from the second half of this year.
The ‘pink light’ is a service first started by the Busan city council collaborated with local businesses in Busan, to remind passengers to yield seats to expecting women.
Pregnant women can receive sensors which light up the device attached to the priority seats.
When the sensors are near the device, it becomes activated by glowing pink lights; an audio system also alerts passengers by telling them to yield their seats with consideration.
